Sands of Time

Time flows
In a pattern
Going forever forward
Sand wisping in the wind
Events, places, and people blowing away
Grasping for them before they are gone
Living on
Watching it go
Alone, weary watcher I be
Following happy times, not part of it
Sorrowfully seeing unfortunate times
Sands continuing to fly
Around and away
I'll keep watching
Until I am dust
